(It's bigger than you'd think.) And he would've gotten away with it too if not for Kid Flash...

** One could just as easily apply this question to many of Batman's villains, most notably the Penguin and SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. The Penguin is widely known for his use of trick umbrellas, while the Joker has used everything from acid-squirting flowers to electrified joybuzzers to razor-sharp playing cards.

** The {{Trope Namer|s}} is SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in Tim Burton's ''Film/{{Batman}}''. In one scene Batman rescues reporter Vicki Vale from the Joker's clutches using a zipline gun, and the Joker asks his men "Where does he get those wonderful toys?" Used again later on when Batman uses the Batwing to steal all his poison-filled balloons, causing the Joker to scream why nobody told him he had one of those things... [[{{Hypocrite}} only to later shoot it down with a four foot long revolver]].

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' and ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', any weapon Shepard acquires (including the antique Lancer and xeno-tech Particle Rifle in the latter game), aside from Heavy Weapons, instantaneously spawns copies for everyone in the party. It's explained that the copies are built in the on-board armory (being able to use them before returning to the ''Normandy'' is just an AcceptableBreakFromReality), but unlike tech lab upgrades, Shepard never has to pay for extras no matter how esoteric the gun is. The same thing happens with weapon upgrades, grenades, ammo powers and pretty much every other addon; obtain one, and you'll have enough for any situation with no fuss.
